Police to put ring of steel around Melbourne CBD to stop lockdown protest

Liberty Victoria said it was unhappy with the force’s ­approach. “We are concerned that Victoria Police’s military-style tactics could be normalised and ­deployed against future ­responsible protests,” it said.

“We are also worried that shutting down public transport access to the city will unreasonably affect essential workers and CBD residents.”
